A nice bright Choice BU example of the next-to-last year of the Shield Nickel series, perfect as a Type example. As is common to this high mintage year, the dies were used hard, resulting in significant die cracks on the Obverse. In fact, the part of the die striking the right side of the coin was rapidly developing a major “cud”, likely resulting in condemnation in short order. Interesting as an example of the difficulties the Mint faced with this series, if nothing else.
